Finding Success on Instagram

It’s almost the two year anniversary of the inception of Gwyneth Made Me Do It, and it’s strange to think I started the account on a silly whim, never thinking it would grow to what it has become. Sure, at close to 14,000 followers, I’m nowhere near the chart topping success of many other accounts which […]

Leek, White Bean & Tuna Spring Salad

We have Taylor to thank for this salad. Last week when she made this dinner, she added it to the menu at the last minute and it may have been my favorite part of the whole meal, I loved it so much I practically licked the bowl clean. The original recipe is from The Silver Spoon […]

Moroccan Chicken Salad

California Pizza Kitchen is hands down, Syd’s favorite place to eat. The kid would be content to eat their mac n cheese every single day for the rest of his life. Or at least until his taste buds evolve a bit. My point being, whenever there’s a special occasion to celebrate and we leave the […]

That old familiar saying about only 2 certainties in life being death and taxes, should be amended to include 3 certainties – death, taxes, and cooking, because we all must eat. And unless you plan to eat take-out for the remainder of your life, someone’s gotta do it, so why not try to at least […]

The Most Commonly Asked Questions About the Planetbox – Answered

I’ve been posting photos of the kid’s lunches almost daily since the beginning of the school year. I had posted a few pictures off and on a bit during the 2013-2014 school year, and they always garnered a lot of attention and questions. Not that they were anything extraordinary, in fact they were quite basic, […]

Easy Breaded & Baked Chicken Cutlets

I have an internal conversation with myself each day as I prepare dinner, in which I decide whether Syd will eat the food I’m preparing.
